About Grace 0.1

About Grace & Such

Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 
~ Ephesians 4:3

In today’s political and cultural climate, with the overwhelming amount of social media, we are an unwilling audience to the hatred among Christians, among fellow believers. God’s grace abounds, yet so many show so little of it toward others. Grace & Such was started as a way to show healthy and gracious conversation, even when we are in disagreement. Our blog includes posts written by a diverse team of women whose only objectives are to share their grace journeys and show what grace-in-action really looks like to the community of believers who, at times, seems to have forgotten how.

Who We Are

As our tagline says, we are a bunch of women writing about grace. And such.

We are a diverse group of women, ranging in age from 20 to 60-something.

Some of us are married; some are divorced; some are single.

Some of us have children; some have grandchildren; some have neither.

Some of us are conservative; some are liberal; some are somewhere in between.

We don’t agree on everything and that’s okay. But here’s what we do agree on:

  • We believe the Bible is the inspired, authoritative Word of God
  • We believe in one God in three distinct, equal persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • The Father is the creator of all
  • The Son (Jesus Christ) is our salvation and the only way to the Father
  • The Holy Spirit indwells followers of Jesus and is the source through which we are able to live godly lives

Our desire is to encourage other women as we share our thoughts and experiences as well as Biblical truths.

What About You?

By Katie Thompson | November 13, 2015

Every Thanksgiving during dinner, which usually turns into a late lunch, my mom makes us all go around the table and say what we’re thankful for. When I was younger it use to be simple or silly things like “I’m thankful for my toys” or “I’m thankful for my friends.” Both of which are true, but since I was about 8 or so, I didn’t think that diving deeper into what I was thankful for was necessary. Now that I’m…

Thankfulness: Nature or Nurture?

By Terri Stone | November 11, 2015

Saying “thank you” is one of the first things our parents taught us to say. I hear my daughters tell their children all the time, “Say thank you to…” My older grandchildren say it without being prompted and one of the little ones, who’s just learning to talk, uses sign language to say “thanks.” This generation-to-generation teaching develops lifelong attitudes and actions of gratitude. When I think of thankfulness, I think of my beloved flowering plants. I have an ever-blooming…

A Heart Of Longing

By April Jean | November 9, 2015

You know what I am always thankful for after the fact? I am thankful that God doesn’t give me what I want right when I want it.  [No, God this is not an invite for more of that!] 😉 In the waiting, there are plenty of tears and stomps of the feet. I don’t typically like the experience or enjoy it. However, the wise, spiritual part of myself knows that in the waiting, my intimacy with God grows tremendously more…

Giving Thanks For My Portion

By Gretchen Hanna | November 6, 2015

“You get what you get and you don’t throw a fit.” Are any of you familiar with that saying? I think I first heard it when my eldest child was in preschool – it was said by one of the preschool teachers, and pertained to snack or something equally as high currency, I’m guessing. As I’ve grown into my forties faith, I’ve begun to realize that not only do I ‘get what I get and not throw a fit,’ but…
